The Williams Channel rolls on

A rather interesting streak may continue this week. Since (that is, not including) OZ 2002, Venus and/or Serena has played in the finals of every tournament they entered except one in each case.

Venus didn't make the Dubai final.
Serena didn't make the Charleston final.

This list includes all Tier II, Tier I and GS tournaments play by Venus or Serena since OZ 2002.
Code:
Paris          Venus Williams     def. Jelena Dokic 
Antwerp        Venus Williams     def. Justine Henin
Dubai          Amelie Mauresmo    def. Sandrine Testud
Scottsdale     Serena Williams    def. Jennifer Capriati
Miami          Serena Williams    def. Jennifer Capriati
Amelia Island  Venus Williams     def. Justine Henin
Charleston     Iva Majoli         def. Patty Schnyder
Hamburg        Kim Clijsters      def. Venus Williams
Berlin         Justine Henin      def. Serena Williams
Rome           Serena Williams    def. Justine Henin
Roland Garros  Serena Williams    def. Venus Williams
Wimbledon      Serena Williams    def. Venus Williams
The GS, Tier I and Tier II tournaments they didn't play in were Toray Pan Pacific, Indian Wells and Eastbourne.

All Williams all the time. Has a nice ring to it. And we're almost there.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

If the stats aren't good enough, and they should be, you can always make some up.

VenusSerena -

OZ 2000
RG 2000
OZ 2001

Venus and Serena have won six the last nine GS tournaments.

Let's credit Lindsay, Mary and Jenn where its due.
